I saw that yesterday! Brilliant!!! ;)

It was actually not quite accurate yesterday, hence my waiting till today. But thought it might interest a few people. Especially the 'bean counters' amongst you :)

Hey!I resemble that remark! ;)

'bean counters' is such a funny expression. I always see someone in front of me actually counting out beans...

Didn't you know that what your tax accountant really does??? Has a whole closet full of different color beans for the different monetary denominations. Just ask Anne and Phil and James and...

You'd think they could make a robot to count the beans. Would be so much quicker ;)

How about having something like this at the side bar:

Just a thought.

It's a good thought and it's been discussed, and if I'm not mistaken, even attempted before by Pete... problem is, it crashed the server :) Although it's a nice little function, I don't see the benefit for it if it even just slows down the processing a little. Most sites that have this, run it only on a specific area (like the forums) or are simply so untrafficked that they can get away with it over the whole site :) Then again, if there's any coldfusion nuts out there that have a fix, we'd be happy to look at it

ps. I will set up a stats page soon though for those number crunchers amongst us (me included :) )!

A stats page is a good idea, or having it only on the forums.. unless you could do it in one query... say every five minutes or so. It wouldn't be 100% accurate, but it would give people an idea. So instead of the client running the query have the server do it.

I am not sure if that makes sense... * Ninja! Vanish!*
